A Girl in the River examines the tensions between modernism and tradition in Pakistan through the story of an 18-year-old woman who survived an attempted honor killing. Saba was shot in the head and thrown into a river to die by her father and uncle after she fell in love and married without her family’s permission. The story of Saba’s survival and its complicated aftermath is told through interviews with her, the police officer and doctor who saved her life, and others, including her father.
